The Charm of Slight Imperfection

I cherish that slight imperfection
something exquisite and honest
about a thing, just barely flawed
like an egg with a small dimple
a beautiful face with a tiny scar
a scar with a crooked story
a story with a flawless beginning
but perhaps, an imperfect ending
neither picture perfect
nor what we would have chosen

I want the pattern of my life
to have that one line
slanted in the wrong direction
testimony to a true day
not one so unlikely
it was made up
surely by fools
for the storybooks
they read to us
so long ago
that we now know
were false

"The Charm of Slight Imperfection" was originally published in

The Poet's Touchstone (Poetry Society of New Hampshire) in 2007

and written by Odarka.
